In Everything Give Thanks! PP418

November 11, 2018

Oh, what a week it was in Cabo!  I had a wonderful time celebrating 43 years of friendship with my Alpha Phi Sorority Sisters from Indiana University!  It was very difficult to return to chilly Atlanta last evening.  I stepped off the plane to 35 degrees!  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at  The Paper Players

The lovely Laurie is our hostess and she has a fun color challenge for all of us!  

My card is created on a Smoky Slate card base.  I created the background using a retired background stamp from Waltzingmouse.  Unfortunately, they are no longer in business.   I used Poppy Parade to make the fun plaid background.  
The leaves were stamped with So Saffron, Smokey Slate and Poppy Parade using a retired Stampin Up! stamp set called 
Vintage Leaves.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Indian Summer  stamp set and  stamped in Smoky Slate.  I added a few sequins to complete my card.  

 Create a NEW paper, or digital, project.
Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.

  1. The colors work awesome for a fall beautiful Claire! 35 sounds pretty warm to's 17 here with horrible winds...haha! Your trip looked so fun!!!

  2. It looks like you had a great time away with your university friends! The card is great too. I like the plaid background against the Smoky Slate base.

  3. I love your card, a fun, festive fall creation! SO happy you had fun in Cabo too...but 35 degrees in Atlanta?! Yikes, that might have been colder than PA! And it's still autumn!

  4. Claire, it looks like you had a great time in Cabo! I love your card with its plaid background and layered leaves, too! Such beautiful use of the colors.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, Claire! You can't beat plaid for a background! You did a wonderful job stamping the leaves and incorporating the challenge colors. Woo hoo! It looks like you had a wonderful time with your sorority sisters.

  6. Claire... the trip sounds idyllic! Love that you are making fall cards when you seem to be clearly in WINTER up in Indiana. Great card.

  7. Claire, the trip must have been wonderful! I love the plaid background for your card and the overstepped leaves are a perfect reminder of the wonderful fall leaves laying in our garden. I love the sentiment, too.
    fabulous card

  8. Your background plaid pairs perfectly with your colourful falling Fall leaves Claire - gorgeous! So glad you had a great trip - fab photos too!
